How to Get off Keto Diet & Other Restrictive Diets (What Will Happen)

what up guys welcome back to the fit men
cook kitchen so today’s video is a lot
of fun we’ve got a transition video now
many of you have written me and you’ve
had a lot of success regarding the keto
diet but now you’re ready to introduce
carbs back into your diet and you are
super anxious about gaining a bunch of
weight so first off I totally understand
this fear this was a real fear for me as
well especially when you’ve just done so
much to lose the weight the fear of
going back to your former self is very
real I didn’t have this fear when it
came to keto but I’ve had this before so
two things the first one you’ll be fine
remember that if you’ve lost the weight
before then you can loose it again it
wasn’t just the diet and exercise that
helped out it was your discipline as
well so you did that in your mind and
you won in your mind first and then you
won in your body
however and secondly transitioning
properly from any extreme diet and yes I
do classify keto as an extreme diet
because it is pretty restrictive both in
foods and macronutrients so
transitioning from any extreme diet can
lead to unnecessary weight gain alright
so first off why in the world are you
stopping keto you got to first determine
what that Y is just in case there could
be other factors at play now for
instance if you’re going through a
really tough time emotionally all that
emotion can lead to not so positive
choices in another diet as well it’s
best to work on those emotional factors
before trying to transition into
something brand new but I suspect that
most of you are us are heading into the
fall in winter months and meals are much
more carb heavy we’ve got a lot of
comfort food there are tons of
gatherings you’ve got sporting events
and tailgating a super restrictive diet
may not be conducive and remember at the
end of the day I will continue preaching
this until y’all get me on this is that
your diet should always complement your
lifestyle this is the number one reason
I find that people fail in their diets
is because they are not having diets
that they can sustain because they don’t
complement what they do on a day-to-day
basis so unless you’re prepared to make
necessary sacrifices and potentially
forego social gatherings or you have
really aggressive fitness goals because
you are a competitor or you have a photo
shoot like you legit have those things
then you’re likely headed to die
failure so it’s best to transition from
that diet and keep in mind guys you can
always go back to the keto diet
especially for those that have been fed
adapted for quite some time it would
likely be much easier for you to get
back into that after temporarily
breaking ketosis so here are some tips
to transition from the keto diet and
really just any diet for that matter
number one first thing you got to do is
make a plan now I’m not saying that you
need to have an exact play-by-play of
your diet for the next few weeks even
though that is pretty helpful but you
should have an idea of how you want to
start incorporating carbs back into your
diet and this could look like many
different things it could mean adopting
a similar diet for a brief period of
time you can consider carb cycling or
even trying a paleo ish approach to your
diet for carb cycling this means eating
more or less carbs on certain days while
others are essentially carb free or
super low similar to keto but without
all the high amounts of fat paleo is
another diet that you may want to
consider doing it’s similarly low in
carbs but it’s a bit more manageable
because it’s not as restrictive just
have a general idea of how you want to
transition don’t just go cold turkey and
go back to eating copious amounts of
carbs and some of you all may find that
helpful to hire a knowledgeable and
nutritionist or a dietitian to help out
or a personal trainer who legit knows
about foods and diets number two you got
a phase in those carbs now admittedly
for me transitioning from keto was much
easier because I was doing something
that I didn’t realize that I was doing
that would be really helpful later on
after getting off of keto
I was routinely enjoying a treat meal
every seven days the extra carbs gave me
a whole lot of energy for training and I
even schedule these on the weekends so
that I way I can enjoy them with friends
and family so getting back into ketosis
was not too challenging I got my body
into the habit of having some carbs so I
wasn’t shocking my system by introducing
carbs again now I know that you’re gonna
be craving a whole bunch of baked goods
instead up for plant-based foods such as
legumes and chickpeas and sweet potato
some fibrous vegetables and of course
fruits yes you can finally eat fruits
again prioritizing these real foods
first can also mitigate the risk of you
getting sick and if you
bloated and lethargic but I will say you
still got to go easy on some of those
plant-based foods such as beans because
your body could have a visceral reaction
to it and that bloating could be really
severe and that gas too so just FYI
keeping it real what you’ll also find is
that your workouts and probably even
your performance at work is going to
improve with the result of having a lot
more carbs into your diet don’t get too
carried away keep it slow and transition
slowly and steadily number three take
elements of keto and apply it to your
new regular diet so for me I really like
the feeling of being satiated but not
super full and bloated at nighttime I
would begin to pair a protein source
such as like chicken or fish with an
avocado or another healthy fat and then
enjoy an abundance of vegetables grilled
or raw to make the meal much partyer
I would then prioritize all of my carb
heavy meals either earlier in the day or
right after my workout and that seemed
to work perfectly for me again that work
for me here’s how you can find out what
works for you
you start with one meal with carbs
reintroduce some carbs I would say
anything between thirty and fifty grams
and see how you feel and then little by
little begin to add more carbs to your
diet what I would advise against is I
would highly highly highly avoid adding
carbs to meals that would otherwise be
considered a keto meal so for instance a
meal with about 20 grams of protein and
40 50 grams of fat
I would not add 40-plus grams of carbs
to that meal so instead do this add
moderate levels of clean fats to meals
to make them much more abundant such as
some avocado slices some nuts and seeds
and some oils and those can make the
meal much more abundant keep you feeling
satisfied and also help to mitigate the
risk of your sugar spiking or you having
a big crash because you’ve added too
many carbs to your diet and number four
lastly don’t go and start juicing just
to lose some weight again because this
skill has changed you will likely gain a
few pounds oh my god yes you will gain
some weight and it’s okay and you’re
probably gonna gain weight pretty
quickly but don’t freak out it’s
probably just some water weight you may
not be able to see your definition as
much let it get its likely just water
because
Arabs carry water I think it’s like one
gram of carb gives you about 4 grams of
water but as soon as you cut carbs again
all that definition will will come right
back to you
all right guys that’s it for today’s
video those are my four quick tips for
transitioning from the keto diet but
also just from any diet in general you
want to have a plan phase it in practice
some good portion control and don’t
freak out and go to another extreme diet
just to kind of copy those results just
keep it balanced guys just so you know
guys there is life after keto there is
life after paleo life after whole xxx
there’s an abundance of food and
cuisines out there and I think that if
you practice balance and portion
controlling you could actually enjoy it
all and have a really fulfilled and full
diet comment below with your tips and
tricks on how you are able to transition
from keto or any other diet we want to
pick your brain all right guys thank you

that’s right
